This usually caused by one of two things. The bucket is not installed properly or the float valve in the bucket is stuck in the UP position. The float valve is not in all models.

Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it. Remove the bucket, look in the top of the bucket on the left side closest to you. If you see a float valve you have that model. If the float is in the UP position, jiggle it so that it will return to the down position. Then reinstall the bucket. Plug the cord back in and turn the unit ON.

If you don't have a float valve, make sure, when you reinstall the bucket, that it fits "squarely" into the holder from top to bottom. When installed properly, the bottom of the bucket should not tilt down at all. The top, back side of the bucket must make firm contact with the bucket removal safety switch.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

SOURCE: Full Bucket light stays on so dehumidifier will

If you don't have the manual it's here for free...

Look at the picture in the upper right corner of page 12. The RED button is located in the upper left rear of the bucket cavity.

It may be jammed. Tap on it to make sure it moves freely. It must be pressed IN to indicate NOT FULL and allow operation. You should hear a click when it changes state and the light should go on and off. The weight of the float in the bucket presses it in until the water level rises.

How do i use?

Turn it on. It should work itself. After a day the compartment at the bottom is a bucket and it comes out. It will fill with water, the machine will shut off. Dump it. Put it back. It will start again

My Zenith dehumidifier model #zd300 will not work. It is only one year old and worked fine when I shut it off for the winter. Now when I plug it in the full bucket light blinks and the humidifier setting...

I had the very same problem with my Zenith ZD300 dehumidifier. After getting no help from the manufacturer and realizing that it was going to cost $45 just to figure out what was wrong with it, I dismantled the dehumidifier myself in search of a solution. I suspected it was the humidity sensor, so I ordered the part off Repair Clinic website ( It cost $18.20 plus shipping. AND IT WORKED!! I was so relieved that I wouldn't have to buy a new dehumidifier. It's been running for a day now, so we will see. Here's the website link:

Zenith ZD30 dehumidifier - 1 1/2 years old stopped working had a half bucket oc colledted water in bucket when it stopped. I checked the fuse on the circuit board and have continuity.

Unplug from wall. Take the front cover off and disconnect the 2 wires that attach to the humidity control dial. Plug back in. If it works, the problem is the humidty control dial (mine just went bad). With it unhooked, it will run constantly, but will still turn off when the bucket is full. To turn off, simply unplug.

Red light is flashing on my Zenith dehumidifier every 7 seconds or so. Bucket is empty. what should i do to get it running again?

take out bucket and locate bucket full switch, depress it, if unit works you will need to add shim to bucket to hold it in.
